Foundation Impact at Groveland
2018-19 Foundation Teacher Grants for Groveland
This grant will use critical literacy to promote social justice through book clubs. Students will create solutions to problems they have read about.
Growing Through Grief
Design for Learning
A district wide innovation project that empowers students and staff to transform education through the design of the learning environment.
Launching The Hub to Promote Maker-Based Learning
I like to mess around with wiring and technology. It was really cool to tap a carrot and have it play a piano. I have a room in my house I call my lab. When someone gives me a device, I try to fix it and make it work. The Hub tools are another way to tinker and work in the same way
Future workplaces will require people who can problem-solve, adapt and communicate in environments that are increasingly complex.
With $200,000 from our Endowment Fund, the Foundation launched The Hub last year. We provided plugged and unplugged materials to enhance the tonka
The Hub materials provided by the Foundation encourage open-ended student-driven learning experiences that encourage creativity, collaboration and teamwork to achieve a goal.
